Twitter is a great way to connect with the creative world. Its quick simple and goes direct to them. So is it possible to tweet your way to a job? It sure is. Here are my tips on how to do it successfully. 

Make sure you follow the people you want to get in touch with, this way you can see what they are tweeting about and potentially join in the conversation. 

If you don't have anything constructive to say don't say anything at all. The last thing someone wants is an irritating student popping up on everything they post. 

Post interesting things to your feed, things that will appeal to the desired director. You want them to find you interesting and engage with you. 

Use hashtags. How are they going to find you unless you make the effort? Occasionally you can find specific hashtags for companies, find them and get involved.

Build a relevant network, you want people who are also in the industry in your network so they can share things you say.

Take twitter into the real world. Ask to meet them. If you don't ever meet up with them then how are you going to get any further than online. Ask them for a coffee.

Please log in or sign up before participating in the conversation.
